Representative Text

1 I'm sometimes up and sometimes down,
I'm sometimes almost level with the ground,

Chorus:
O reign, O reign, O reign, my Saviour,
O reign salvation in a my soul,
Reign, Massa Jesus, reign.

2 Yes, the heaven's so high and I'm so low,
I don't know whether I'll get to heav'n or no, [Chorus]

3 Yes, I want to go the heav'n, and I want to go right,
I want to go to heav'n all dressed white, [Chorus]

4 When I get to heav'n I'm going to sit right down,
I'm going to ask the Lord for my starry crown, [Chorus]
